Unhappy Trump may have kept classified documents to blackmail the DOJ into not indicting him

Michael Cohen doubles down on claim that Trump may have kept classified documents to blackmail the DOJ into not indicting him
By: Sophia Ankel - Insider News - 09-08-22 19-min. ago

* Michael Cohen discussed the report that the FBI found classified nuclear documents at Mar-a-Lago.

* Cohen told MSNBC Trump may have kept the papers to blackmail the DOJ into not indicting him.

* For Trump, it is "all about power," Cohen said.

Donald Trump's former fixer, Michael Cohen, doubled down on his claim that the former president may have kept classified documents at Mar-a-Lago to blackmail the Department of Justice into not indicting him.

Cohen appeared on MSNBC's "The ReidOut" on Wednesday to discuss a Tuesday report by The Washington Post that said FBI agents had found classified documents about a foreign government's nuclear-defense capabilities during their August 8 search of Trump's Florida estate.

The report, which cited several unnamed sources familiar with the investigation, did not specify which foreign government the documents were about.

When MSNBC host Joy Reid asked Cohen to "speculate" on why Trump would keep these top-secret documents in Mar-a-Lago, the lawyer said: "This is all about power for Donald Trump."

"This is all about him still remaining relevant and exerting the power over the United States as extortion in the event you indict me or members of my family, if you indict me or try to incarcerate me, I have nuclear secrets that I have instructed some of my followers to turn over to our adversaries," Cohen said.

Trump also said he expects Trump to be indicted "relatively soon," echoing remarks by David Lauftmann, a former senior DOJ counterintelligence official, and Bill Barr, who served as US attorney general under Trump.

Representatives for Trump did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

The Mar-a-Lago search was part of an investigation into whether Trump violated three federal laws, including the Espionage Act.

This is not the first time Cohen has suggested that Trump was keeping government documents for extortion.

He told MSNBC last month that the former president was likely using the secret documents that he took to Mar-a-Lago "as a get-out-of-jail-free card."

"It's a way to extort America turn around to say if you put me in jail if you go after me ... I will have my loyal supporters who you do not know who has copies of information that may have been," Cohen said at the time.

Personal note: We've all known Trump's past - he is also known as a shyster.
He learned all this - from Daddy (now deceased). There's a bit of gangster
or CYA (cover your ass) - plus moffia influence - ingrained by his Daddy.
Mr. Warbucks (now deceased). His Dad was a high roller with enough money
to buy his way into just about anything. His audacious life cycle is a front
to enhance those who want to be like him. Of which many like him are
now dead or in prison.
The tricks he learned from his Father are very transparent and his demeanor
is such that he states - you can't touch me. He languishes or flaunts his
habitats - as though he was a King. Which is a front to enhance his abilities
of which are; mostly cheating and blackmailing. He's super aerogant & pompus.
He's cheated people of their money - and a person I would not trust.
He's also a womanizer of which his past has made perfectly clear. He wasn't
a very good student - and dodged the draft (from bone spurs). The only
bone spur he has - is the one in his head.
How he became President is beyond me. I would also comment that Biden
was too old to be president as you can see that in his demeanor and physical
condition. He's 15 years too late to be president. An as for Trump he
lives in a world of his very own - only!
Whose next - God only knows - the voters will put the person they want
in - regardless of other's (like me have to say). They are flattered by his
actions and demeanor - but in reality its a 'false front". He has no heart
or feelings except for himself and what he can gain and use a front for
his next move.
Finally - If the people buy into his speel's or BS - they then have to live
with it. I for one - will not vote for Biden or Trump. Whomever else is
running - has yet to be announced?
The other issue is: Too much dead wood in Congress on both sides.
All I know is we are nearing an age of which America is showing its
colors. We've battled all over the world to help others and yet we
end up on the short stick an loose thousands of our service people
in the process. NATO has got to get a backbone! As for Russia -
China - and North Korea - you gotta get life other than the one
of nuclear war! If we don't learn to live together one or more
of these socalled - super-powers will cease to exist and after
that then what!?
We have to learn to work together - or sure as hell - we will
destroy this planet and any possibliies of a future other than;
more dieases - nuclear radiation - starvation and crulity.
We have promise and potential - but only by working together
can we suceed or destroy all ife as we know it!
Lastly I'm not prejudice - this has to be eliminated. I've served
with men of color - brave men - I know many nationalities
from my service days and in my civilian jobs. I've been
around this world - I've worked with foreigner's - they are
no different from you or I.
Look what we've done to our planet. It wont' take much
more to destroy what remains. We can only fix these
issues if we learn to live and work together as a team
can we succeed.
NOTE: This MAGA verbiage is BS. We are already a
great country - the disenchanted of late - is only
making things worse.
Come on People - we can fix it but not unless we
remain civilized and work together can it be
What we do today - is what our kids will have to
live with when we are gone! Let's get our act
together and try to be more social about issues
rather then eccentric.
Do you think any of this would help? I sure hope
so. I dread the idea of dying and leaving this world
- knowing our future has declined and that our kids
will have to try to fix the issues - if we don't.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
